ChocoMuseo, Cusco

4.0
#1 of 32 in Classes in Peru
More than a simple chocolate shop, ChocoMuseo aims to explain the chocolate-making process through exhibits and workshops. Visitors can take a free tour of the exhibits, but the real treat lies in making and tasting your own creations through one of the workshops. Every lesson sends you home with a generous portion of chocolates handmade by you, but if you're pressed for time, you can explore the menu of delicious pre-made treats. To visit ChocoMuseo and get the most from your holiday in Cusco, create itinerary details personal to you using our Cusco day trip tool .

  • If you go here, be sure that you get Manu for a tour guide- he was hilarious. I don’t think that I laughed harder at any time during my week visiting Peru! The chocolate and liquor tasting was fun too...  more »

  • Very knowledgeable staff and amazing taste testing opportunity. Swing by if you have a chance to visit this place and sign up for the class demonstrating how to create chocolate. It is 75 soles per person (~$23) and you are able to create your chocolate from scratch. The only thing better than this would have been actually harvesting cocao beans AT a local area. Regardless, my girlfriend and I had a blast learning about the entire process since we are engineering nerds at heart.
  • Wasn't too fussed on going here but my wife insisted. I was pleasantly surprised! Free Chocolate tea tasting on arrival. Great chronological information on the history of cocoa and chocolate. Then chocolate and chocolate alcohol tasting. Can definitely recommend this place to add to your things to do in Cusco.
  • Nice as a pastime. More a shop with some information about cacao and chocolate manufacturing than a museum. Staff is nice but almost pushy. Loads of free samples of their products (chocolate bars, chocolate lotion, hot chocolate powder ...). The Cafe there is nice too. We had a chocolate fondue which was very tasty and was served with fresh fruits.
  • Had the tour of the museum and took the bean to bar chocolate making class. We had a lot of fun and our instructor was amazing. Highly recommended!
  • Short museum about the cacao, explains to you how chocolate is made by a person, if you are hoping to see machines and live process this is not your place, give you a taste of chocolate liquor mixed with different flavors and chocolate jams, has a restaurant with salad and sweet food also.
